Ferdinando Paoletti, born 1881, left Arquata 1909 for the US and we have no record of his parents. However, from his aunt Anna Paoletti Pacifici death certificate we know his grandparents were Francesco Paoletti and Catherine Giorgi. Ferdinando married Mariantonia Rossi and died in Delaware, USA. I recently discovered he was visited in the US by a brother, Sebastiano Paoletti. Hope there is someone who can help solve the mystery of who the parents of Ferdinando Paoletti were. Thank You
